working at a workshop

Our meetings on the second Saturday of each month usually feature a workshop. We have made books in boxes, miniature books, puzzle books, pop-up books and much more. We learn bookbinding techniques as well as ways to decorate, fold and work with paper and other book arts materials. Most of these are taught by our members, but we also have occasional guest classes with well-known book artists from outside of the area.

You don't need to have any prior experience in book art or making books to benefit from, and enjoy, our workshops. All you need is curiosity and a desire to learn and create.

Attending Your First Workshop?

The link to the next available workshop is shown on the left. Check to see if supplies or an RSVP are needed. You may attend two meetings (and/or) receive two newsletters before deciding to join.

The following tools comprise the basic book-making kit and should be brought to every meeting:
